Звездная селекция Мойеса: как Дэвид пытался приобрести Бэйла, Сеска и Крооса

David Moyes

Former coach of Manchester United David Moyes spoke about his transfer plans during his work at old Trafford, which never materialized.

Moyes has led United in 2013 after the retirement of the legendary sir Alex Ferguson. On the one hand the Scot has been handed a championship team, but the other team was full of aging players and in need of rejuvenation and rebuilding.

Despite given the leadership of the Red Devils, Moyes was not able to demonstrate satisfactory performance, which was dismissed before the end of the season. However, fans still debate on whether enough was a good selection of players available to David.

A few years later, the Scottish Manager has shed light on his transfer plans that are truly “Napoleonic”. Moyes was going to get the stars of the first magnitude, which, however, never joined the team.

While Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho received from the management of the club carte Blanche on the purchase of the star performers for a lot of money, such as angel Di Maria and Paul Pogba, Moyes only got his former ward Fellaini. Thus, in the words of David, he wanted to bring to the team Toni Kroos, Cesc Fabregas and even Gareth Bale.

“When I joined the team, my main goal was Gareth bale,” says Moyes.

“All the time I felt that Gareth will perfectly join Manchester United and believed in his signature. I fought for it until the last minute. We really made Tottenham a more lucrative financial deal than real Madrid (100 million pounds vs. 85). But Gareth had already decided he wanted to play in Madrid. It was a performer that I really was going to get Manchester United”.

“Another player was Cesc Fabregas, but he decided to stay one more season in Barcelona. Sometimes it is impossible to make a deal. In the case of Gareth Bale real Madrid ahead of us, with Cesc we were also disappointed. In addition, in January we have already had a preliminary oral agreement with Tony Kroos…”

“I remember at our first meeting with sir Alex, he said that there is still a chance of the return of Cristiano Ronaldo. So players of this level were our transfer targets,” concluded Moyes.

At the moment David is headed by Sunderland, which is in the relegation zone of the Premier League – 18th place in the table.
